    We exist to encourage each other to become more like Jesus by
    building relationships with one another through Bible studies, fellowships,
    and service
     so we can glorify God by loving well and by being His hands and feet.

    So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are doing. (1 Thess. 5:11)
    Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a
    new person by changing the way you think. (Romans 12:2)
    What is important is faith expressing itself in love. (Galatians 5:6b)

    IF:Gathering 2019, March 1-2 at Fourth Avenue.
    This is a generation that is not just hungry for big faith, but for a big faith that is lived out in the practical, mundane things we do and the decisions that we make everyday. What does it look like to follow God and live out this faith in our relationships, at our jobs, in conflict, in suffering, with money? Faith can move mountains, but it can also change our everyday circumstances, so we are going to look at God’s word to do that in one of the most practical, yet misunderstood, books of the Bible – Proverbs. Proverbs doesn’t show us a set of rules, but a different way to live that is so attractive, so fragrant, flowing through our lives, actions, relationships, and work, and drawing people to Christ. Together, we are going to discover what it looks like to do these things, not perfectly, but in good faith, trying our best to obey God and His way of life. Click here for more IF:Gathering info.
